Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Winter People manage a lush and remarkable post-rock/folk sound, creating a charming blend of styles that fits right alongside modern bands like The National, Arcade Fire, and Ra Ra Riot just as well as it might on a tape of appalachian folk songs. Citing the solitude of coming from an island nation as a prerequisite for creativity, here the band offers advice on being a democracy of six people and gives their recommendation for the perfect time to listen to the featured track, “Gallons.”
Featured song: “Gallons”
Winter People’s A Year At Sea is available now from Hub.
